JFS welcomed new members Tom Cytron-Hysom, Joel Glaser, Bruce Goodman, Jamie Maddeaux and Andy Rapoport to the board of directors during its June meeting.
JFS Community Chaplain Rabbi Lynn Liberman, BCC, and para-chaplain and cantor Deb Winston will offer a series of three videos to celebrate Shabbat this summer.
JFS is recruiting volunteers for Passover for All, an annual community outreach effort. In partnership with the Minnesota JCC, kosher-for-Passover food and supplies are provided to families to help them celebrate the holiday. There are three opportunities to help with this community outreach effort.
The St. Paul Jewish Federation has announced that Jewish Family Service of St. Paul (JFS) will receive a total of $80,000 in grants from its St. Paul Jewish Community Campaign for COVID Relief.
The grant will be used to strengthen social service programs focused on economic stability, mental health, and self-reliance for seniors and low-income individuals.
The Community Support Program continues to be available to everyone. During this unprecedented time of uncertainty, many people are understandably expressing increased feelings of anxiety, depression and isolation. In response to the need for additional mental health services, we developed this new program that includes three 20-minute phone conversations with one of our mental health professionals at no cost.
Please help us improve more lives with your gift before the end of the year. Together, we can help more people face the most ordinary and extraordinary circumstances in their lives.
With the community’s help, the program hopes to safely deliver more than 150 gift bags to people who are in need emotionally, financially or spiritually.
If you would like help understanding how to vote by mail in the November election, JFS can help. The Voter Assistance program is well-suited for individuals who have a range of experience and exposure to technology. JFS has trained volunteers to walk you through the process step by step, with detailed help.
This program is made possible by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
